Christmas is coming, and Gust decided to celebrate it by releasing a lovely themed illustration of the upcoming JRPG Blue Reflection: Maboroshi Ni Mau Shojo no Ken, in convenient wallpaper formats for PC and smartphones.
On top of that, we also get a Christmas version of the theme song of the game. You can download it at the link below.
Both will be available only between today and Christmas, so we saved them, for the posterity.
Blue Reflection: Maboroshi Ni Mau Shojo no Ken will be released in Japan on March 30th for PS4 and PS Vita, and if you’re unfamiliar with the game, you can enjoy its first trailer and the latest screenshots.
Incidentally, those who aren’t familiar with Japan, might be a bit surprised to see a Japanese developer celebrate Christmas, since most Japanese aren’t really Christians. Yet, like many western Holidays, Japan embraced it, made it its own, and kicked it up a notch. While December 25th is not a holiday in Japan, Tokyo has more lights than the average western city, metric tons of gifts are made (the Japanese absolutely love occasions for gifts), romantic dates are enjoyed, and thousands upon thousands of absolutely yummy Christmas cakes are sold and consumed.
And like in this case, companies and developers love to create little Christmas things like this. Which is rather funny, considering that in the west many are actually afraid to even name Christmas.
That, of course, definitely doesn’t apply to me, as you may have noticed from the fact that I wrote it eight times in a single article, so merry Christmas! Oops… nine.
